Ex-boyfriend who beat, suffocated and let kitten’s body hang jailed

An abusive ex-boyfriend from Birkenhead, Merseyside, United Kingdom, who tortured an eleven-week-old kitten to a slow, agonizing death has been sentenced to four months in jail.  The thug, Kieran Haynes, admitted on Tuesday at Wirral Magistrate’s Court, to causing  the unnecessary suffering of the kitten named Niko, who languished in agony for seven hours.

RSPCA officers have called the cruelty one of the worst cases they have ever seen. Inspector Anthony Joynes, who investigated the case stated he was heartbroken when he discovered the kitten.

“Nothing can fully prepare you for dealing with cases, such as this one, where the animal is already deceased when you arrive. The case involved the purposeful infliction of immense pain and suffering by way of physical violence on a completely defenseless and vulnerable 11-week-old kitten.

Animals can’t choose their owners and unfortunately poor little Niko found himself in the wrong place, at the wrong time and in the care of the wrong individual.”

Rest in peace little Niko. You deserved so much better. Haynes has also been fined $160 victim surcharge and is banned from keeping animals for the rest of his life.

    Whatever this scum did to Niko, should be done to him until he dies a slow and agonizing death. More should be done to these subhumans who torture and slowly kill an animal. Do not deserve to be on this planet anymore.

    I’d like to boil the smirk off that maggots face. I’d use boiling lard for the crackling sound!!!!! A slow drip would work fine. I just can’t find any empathy for that SOS.

      Four month in jail is just another damn slap on the wrist – this punk needs to get exactly what he gave to an innocent and totally defenseless kitten. This spineless piece of horse manure needs a massive dose of abuse dealt to him. I truly hope there are some big predatory inmates in this jail who will make him a victim in every way possible every day. And when he is released he finds himself attacked and beaten to death by some outraged citizens – he deserves no less.

    Sadism is a sexual disorder. It is a sexual preference, not amenable to treatment of any kind. This monster will be a danger to society as long as he lives. People like himself need to be exterminated.

    4 months jail? That poor innocent suffered so. Many of us wish this sewer scum maggot meets up with Bubba in jail and when he gets out, we do also hope there is street justice.

    Oh good, 4 months in jail, fined $160 victim surcharge and is banned from keeping animals for the rest of his life, in other words a “slap on the wrist” This punishment will certainly make a statement! Rest in peace indeed little Niko, the UK court system certainly has found justice for you (sarcasm).

    This jerk looks like an arrogant punk. I hope that, when the other inmates find out he is in jail for torturing and killing a 2 to 3 pound kitten, they will beat this guy senseless. This is hardly a man, but a coward. He ought to have “kitten killer” burned into his face. I won’t even say what I would like to do to this creep. Karma will deal with him. I wish him a life of failure, loneliness, sorrow and pain. Rest in peace, tiny kitten. You deserved better. You are past hurt and suffering now.

    Four months – BFD. That’s NOTHING compared to what poor Niko went through. Also, what good is being banned from owning pets for the rest of his life……after all, Niko didn’t belong to him. What a crock of crap this “punishment’ is – the POS needs to rot in Hell and the sooner the better. RIP sweet Niko. You didn’t deserve to suffer.
